10 Inspiring Quotes for a Good Life that you Can Use for Social Media Today

When I was a teenager, I came across a book of quotes that belonged to my mom. She was discarding it along with other books as we were preparing to move to a new house. Something drew me to pick up that book (I believe it was divine providence). Unbeknownst to me at the time, this book became a source of hope with courage and provided a will to persevere and find a good life in difficult times during my young adult years.

Quotes are powerful

They can inspire you to do great things; support you during challenging times; or just make you laugh silly. Wouldn’t it be awesome to share such quotes and help others live happier and better lives, too? By sharing quotes that mean something to you, you can encourage others to do the same. Social media provides a simple and effective way to share things that you think are important or inspiring or funny. Using social media to spread happiness is not only a way to a good life but also a way to use social media for social good.
